Air is supplied to the lungs for purification through narrow tubes. When these tubes get inflamed and narrowed, it leads to a chronic condition called asthma. With children spending more time indoors, and increased exposure to pollution, dust and second-hand smoke, there is an increased rate of childhood asthma
Allergic rhinitis or nasal allergy, also known as hay fever, is a type of nasal inflammation caused by the immune system's overreaction to airborne allergens. These allergens may provoke an allergic reaction in some people but may not affect others.
Horse allergies refer to allergic reactions triggered by exposure to proteins found in horse dander, hair, or urine. Symptoms may include sneezing, wheezing, skin rashes, and eye irritation. Avoidance measures, such as limiting contact and maintaining a clean environment, along with allergy medications, can help manage these allergies effectively.
A latex allergy is caused by the immune system’s reaction to products containing latex. Common triggers include gloves, paints, balloons, and bandages containing latex. When these objects make contact with the skin, the immune system registers the substance as a threat. Such triggers (allergens) result in the release of histamines which causes allergic symptoms.
Exercise Induced Asthma
Exercise-induced asthma also known as exercise-induced bronchoconstriction (EIB) or sports-induced asthma is a condition characterized by obstruction of airflow immediately after a strenuous exercise. This condition may be seen in people with or without asthma due to the temporary constriction of the lower airways.
